The Benefits of Leadership
The number one reason to join the PTA leadership team is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more advantages. Here are just a few:
Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school than interacting with teachers and administrators.
Tap into a Network. Parenting is not easy—it helps to share ideas, concerns, and experiences with other parents and educators in the community. PTA programs and events are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport and discuss issues that are on your mind.
Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause—your child and all children in the community.
Speak Up. Because the PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school, you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. The PTA plays an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events—all vital to a school’s success.
Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA leader, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
Create the Village. Help to raise kids and strengthen schools and communities. PTA believes we can make every child’s potential a reality—but we need more believers. We need you.
